Lauren Mote’s adult nog gets a splash of tea€”and cognac.

If you’re not an egg nog fan, chances are it’s because you were raised on the thick and bracingly sweet stuff in cartons that lines the grocers’ aisle (or ends up in your latte). But made fresh, it’s revelatory—perfect for when the thermometer dips and the lights are twinkling.Lauren Mote has created a posh, adult version of the holiday drink for this season’s holiday menu at Yew the Four Seasons—and she’s also shared it with us for the WL Recipe Finder. Made with a splash of tea syrup and cognac, this is no carton drink.
